Wizard of Oz poster could sell for over $6k

Collectors can follow the yellow brick road at Heritage's movie posters sale, later this month

Last week, we looked at the investment benefits of Wizard of Oz posters, which have performed well and often brought record prices on the collectors' market.

The midget window card, from 1939

Title cards from the film's 1949 rerelease -better-designed than the 1949 originals -have sold for over $7,000 at auction, with other posters from the film selling for around $3,000.

This striking midget window card - measuring 8"x 14" and featuring stars Jack Haley, Ray Bolger, Judy Garland, Bert Lahr, and Frank Morgan - has been professionally restored, and carries an estimate of $6,000 or more.

It will auction alongsidea vintage poster for Fritz Lang's 1930s sci-fi masterpiece, Metropolis, and an artwork from Charlie Chaplin's 1919 screen classic, Sunnyside.
